How much does it cost to covert a typical vehicle to run on compressed natural gas?
Vehicles equipped to run on compressed natural gas (CNG) currently cost more than the equivalent conventional gasoline and diesel model of the same vehicle. The overall cost of the conversion depends on a variety of factors, including the overall size of the vehicle and the desired tank size. Generally, the conversion cost ranges from approximately $6,500 for light-duty vehicles to $50,000+ for heavy-duty vehicles. In most cases, the increased cost or conversion cost can be recouped over the life of the vehicle, through tax credits and fuel cost savings. There are also a variety of grant programs available that can help cover the incremental cost of CNG vehicles.
